In honor of this very special Thanksgiving at the tail end of two very difficult years for many of us, I hereby inaugurate the "I'm Thankful!" Thread!

Post whatever it is that has you feeling thankful each day!

Today, I'm thankful to have woken up to several really nice messages waiting for me from good friends! 💛

I'm thankful that my 15 year-old cat stopped vomiting blood and is still with us for Thanksgiving. :)

Hmmmmm. I guess I'm thankful for all of existence.

What about the bad parts?
I think this is a rare instance where JLT and I are aligned. We may not want to be thankful for the bad parts, but they are what makes the good parts, well, good. So we can be thankful for the perspective they bring. I mean depending on someones specific beliefs (if the belief is a God kicked off this whole party therefore are responsible for everything thereafter) you could argue that being thankful for all of existence equates to being thankful for God.

Very well put, my good sir! These are my views as well. Perhaps it is counterintuitive, but one can give thanks for even the worst of circumstances with the mindset that the goodness of God is all the greater for them.

I'd have to agree with Esther. There's way too much for me to be thankful for to write it all down!

I am, in particular, thankful to be on track for visiting America. It really feels all too surreal!

I'm thankful for Cresnovian Chess and @TheJLT keeping me entertained during our routine, but aggravatingly prolonged, hospital visit today! 💛

I feel it would be dishonest of me not to respond to this as it's not strictly what I meant.
I wouldn't necessarily take it to that extent, I agree with the proposition 'It is possible to be thankful for all of existence.' the God comparison was to show that people may not question what could reasonably be considered a different way to say the same thing.

I understand. To be fair, I can intellectualize about the goodness of God making all the bad stuff meaningful, but it's a whole other issue to put that belief in practice when confronted with bad stuff in reality.

In short, there's a good reason why there's a whole book of the Bible titled "Lamentations"...

I'm thankful today for hot tea, warm showers, and aftershave. Also, I'm starting to take a real interest in following basketball as a sport, so that's been fun. Also also, a good friend of mine is strongly considering getting baptized soon! 💛
